I keep having an intermittent issue where the admin bar disappears from a wordpress site I often use, when using my main browser (Google Chrome). I can access /wp-admin/ no problem, and another problem is that post previews will not work, instead showing me the 404 page.

Safari, however, works just fine. What can I do to get Chrome to behave properly again?

    Disable all plugins and switch to Twenty Twelve. Does it still happen? – fuxia May 12 '13 at 10:49
  • I can't do that, it's a production system – Jack May 12 '13 at 17:49

    Luckily, you have an exact local dev copy of your site, so we don’t have to guess. :) – fuxia May 12 '13 at 17:59
  • it doesn't happen at all with my dev copy. in fact, now it's mysteriously working again with the production version in chrome, despite having made no changes to plugins or themes whatsoever… I know it must be something I'm doing but I can't figure out what. – Jack May 12 '13 at 21:47

I still don't know what the exact cause was, but deleting cookies for the specific site fixed the problem.
